Welcome to SOLTECH

At SOLTECH, our founders started with a vision almost 20 years ago for the success of our firm: to provide expert custom software solutions and project management support to our incredible community here in Atlanta, GA. That vision has not only come to fruition, but has grown into a wide portfolio of solutions we provide to our clients – clients nurtured over decades of genuine connection with the technology community. We’re homegrown and founder-led, and we welcome creative, intuitive thinkers to our team that can help pave the landscape for what’s next to come in high quality custom software development and staffing.


Software Solutions at SOLTECH

The Software Solutions team at SOLTECH works with clients at every stage of the software process, from discovery to design to full implementation of high caliber software products. We're a collaborative team, so if learning from others is your jam, we're here to help you grow in your career. SOLTECH is committed to the success of our team's constant learning and we want smart, hungry engineers to join us. We work with clients of all sizes, and we take great pride in contributing to technology that helps improve the world around us. Our team is small but mighty, which means you sit amongst experts in the industry, yet maintain the opportunity to create serious impact on a team.


About the Role

As the Software Development Manager, you will lead our Implementation Team through the successes of full-cycle software development for concurrent client projects, guiding our entire development program from client consultancy to the development team's operational success. Leading teams is your bread and butter, and you have extensive expertise as a manager of people, guiding them through their technical as well as professional needs. You have a keen eye on advancements in the tech industry, and feel confident researching ways to improve technical and operational facets of a consultancy's implementation team.


Consulting experience is a must, so that you may bring your experience as a thoughtful consultant to refine our client experience as delivered by our Implementation Team, composed of highly skilled software engineers and architects. Your strong technical background means you can oversee the direction of our technical innovation, and can lead a team through growth at a program level. This role is for a bold leader that's eager to guide and nurture innovation at a highly entrepreneurial organization! 



Day to Day

  • Exercise independent judgement and discretion in overall program management by prioritizing, planning and tracking progress across all engineering project teams
  • Research project development options and provide strategy and analysis for project direction for all teams
  • Consult with internal teams to identify client needs and serve as leadership on overall project objectives
  • Provide support regarding project development to internal teams
  • Manage and lead a group of 40+ highly skilled software developers, and develop support strategy for their long-term success at SOLTECH
  • Evaluate employee performance and set expectations and goals for the Implementation Team at-large
  • Serve as main point of contact for client escalations if necessary


About You

  • 10+ years of technical experience
  • 3+ years of management experience
  • You have experience working in a consulting environment
  • You have experience preparing project estimates and managing projects to budget
  • You dig problem solving, for both projects and people
  • You enjoy motivating, mentoring, and leading software engineers
  • You are comfortable in a highly client-facing role


About our Team and Environment 

We hire hard-working, entrepreneurial people, and believe in empowering them to do great work – we welcome creative thinkers that will raise their hands when a great idea crosses their mind, or when they feel strongly about an alternative opinion (with all due respect!). We hire personable, creative thinkers and proactive problem solvers.


Our Buckhead, Atlanta office was built out just over two years ago, and we’re proud of the modern environment we’ve created for our team – an open floor plan means high opportunity for collaboration for our team, and offices are available for those roles that require more privacy in their work. You’ll never be left at the office with hunger pangs, because we keep our two kitchens stocked with refreshments and snacks to keep our amazing talent satiated! Round out the office with panoramic views that stretch from Buckhead to Downtown to Stone Mountain, we have the most impressive views in town and know you’ll love them, too.


We try to pull away from the computer as a team, too, with bi-weekly soft-skill development gatherings, group lunch crews, lunch-and-learns, and a dedicated culture-creator on the team to make sure we’re constantly nurturing our talent development. Join the SOLTECH team and you’re in for an awesome journey of contributing to an established firm with a creative energy for growth.
